. the pakistanis have been worried about india for years. that drives their policy in afghanistan and even in pakistan. i think if we could ratchet up efforts to convene a regional conference, peace conference, including china, russia, india and then the countries in the ren region, including iran, we have a chance of changing the scene. the goal would be a healthy relationship with a country that holds 100 nuclear weapons and is a democratic ally of ours. >> the aid that the president has said he's going to suspend at this point is about a third of the aid they get. hundreds of millions of dollars. the question, i guess, we have, having been told for years it was important to give them this money because it gave us sway and kept other players from stepping in and filling that void. what happens now? couldn't china step in and say you know what, we're happy to give you that cash and sort of move us out? >> they could, although the technology we're supplying, china doesn't have some of it, but they certainly could supply enough of it, maybe lower grade, and work with pakistan to make up for

most at risk are the arab world, subsaharan africa, and subcontinental india. what are the challenges in each of these regions in particular? why are we highlighting these? >> well, india, if you look at the indian subcontinent, the population is 1.4 billion, same as china, which includes bangladesh and pakistan of it. it's a lot of people in a small area, but they're running out of water, particularly in india. they're overpumping their aquefers, their wells are running dry. and they're projected to grow by 1 million people in the years ahead. subsaharan africa has morelan l, but its population is growing very fast, and it doesn't have the resources to develop the productivity of the land fully. so that's the problem there. and the hunger and malnutrition in the world is concentrated in the indian subcontinent and subsaharan africa. >> do you think the rest of the world -- there's been a big call from the u.n. to say, we need to help these people. is there help available in the rest of the world with the economy teetering the way it is? a lot of countries saying we'd like to help. bu

[ speaking a foreign language ] >> china, augustine says, is moving ahead at lightning speed developing its space program. the man commanding the last shuttle flight worries, too. talk of trips back to the moon and on to mars have always been, well, just talk. >> mars is always 20 years in the future. it's been 20 years in the future for the last 30 years. i'd like to see how committed we are this time. >> i'm not doing too bad. >> no, you did good. >> back at the rock yard in houston, i wasn't going to let an opportunity to drive mike gernhart's vehicle pass me by. >> it gets a whole panorama. >> that's amazing. i'm going to drive a little bit further because this is as close as i'm ever going to get. if america's priorities don't include space, it may be the only opportunity any of us get. >> coming up -- is it time for commercial space? >> we want to see a future where we are exploring the stars, where we're

of the problems? i have wondered about the size. we're the third largest country in land mass like china and india. they're not a democracy like we are. do you think we've reached a tipping point it's not feasible to use the systems we have. >> i believe -- keep in mind i'm a comic. i don't know anything. >> so you're not to be trusted. >> it is my opinion but i do have that stepback you talked about. to me c this country was founded with states having real identities and real power of their own because this country really -- the people are different and especially since it's a nation of immigrants, the idea one central government can determine what's best for and policies that serve everybody in this country is a bad idea going in. you would never have any power structure starting out with that in mind. >> i've always said there's a gap between the real world and official world. the official world says all sorts of things. they say productivity is up and this is better. in the real world, people say i'm paying higher bills, more afraid for my job and it's not better. >> it's a power structure we

, that the u.s. should strengthen its ties with india and try to do an end run that way. what do you think about that? >> well, i think the main issue here is what the united states goals are in this region. the goals are very clear. and i think there's common ground with pakistan. the first goal is to defeat al qaeda. we've heard american officials say recently that this goal is within reach but the goal has not been achieved yet. pakistan is pivotal to defeating al qaeda. secondly, the united states is looking for a way to retreat in an honorable way from afghanistan. and for that, it needs a political settlement in afghanistan to pave the way for the end of u.s. military intervention in afghanistan. again, pakistan, which has a pivotal role to play in that. >> the problem with folks in washington is they had to have known bin laden was there and now we find out today it's reported a senior pakistani doctor was used by the cia to try to get dna from what was suspected of being bin laden's family, to make sure he was the person in that compound. when that came out, pakistani official arre
